Gabriel Schama Available Art

Online shop to purchase the artwork of Gabriel Schama.




Autophagocytosis is an edition of 8 and only 1 copy remains. Once this artwork is sold, this design will never be reproduced. This piece is one-of-a-kind within the edition, each layer individually stained with richly black India Ink.

Autophagocytosis measures 42"x 62" and is composed of thirteen layers of birch plywood.

As with all of my work, this piece comes with hanging hardware pre-installed on the back, and does not require any framing to hang up. Due to the size and weight of this piece it has a french cleat style mount. It will come pre-drilled so the piece can be hung vertically or horizontally.

Each piece is signed and numbered on the back.

  • Autophagocytosis will be shipped in a custom made wood crate. Freight shipping will be calculated and billed separately for each order, in addition to the base cost of this piece.

  • If you are in a reasonable radius of the California Bay Area, I will offer personal delivery and installation.

**Please note that I do everything in my power to ensure that the artwork will arrive immaculate and undamaged. If the mail carrier has a bad day, or you drop the piece after you open it, or for any other reason the work is damaged, I consider all my work to have a no-limit, free-repair warranty. If you ship any piece back to me with return postage, I will do everything I can to fix the damage.**

Also there is always natural variation between sheets of plywood, and sometimes different shipments of the same variety can have a wide range of colors. Photographing these pieces has also proved consistently difficult. I do not guarantee that the shipped to you will exactly match the photos of the prototype. 

I endeavor to make my work as robust as possible, but the designs are still delicate and need to be handled with care. As for most artwork, best practice is to keep these pieces out of prolonged direct sunlight or excessively humid environments.
